I have two FNP 40's and they shoot great, they are about the same size as a XD. My wife shoots one, even with the double row mag she has no problem . Also they come with two backstraps, I believe the new model will also. The three mags is a nice touch. The only issue is a lack of accesories, holsters are scarce but can be found.
I like the new look of the decocker/safety. Here's a PRO-9, manufactured by FNH for Browning. It has since been discontinued, but was referred to as the civilian version of the FNP-9.
To big for me to consider for a CCW but I am in the market for a new home defense gun :) I'll definetly have to give these a look.

FN is well respected. It may be a nice pistol but...low bore axis? Compared with what? A Gyrojet or a Dardik perhaps?
That Chiappa Rhino revolver, reviewed elsewhere here on the Forum, has a low bore axis. This Helfricht .25 has a low bore axis.
While it is just a matter of semantics, the text seems to suggest that the "low bore axis" causes the gun to shoot with a flatter trajectory.
Nice company...but not my taste in a pistol.
I was looking at an FNP 45 earlier as a camping pistol. I agree it looks chunky. But I like the ambi features as my wife is a lefty. What's the difference between FNP and FNX.....Shorter barrel?
Looks interesting... I'd like to try one out...

I have both the FNP-9 and the FNP-40 and I couldnt be happier. I carry either one OWB or IWB with a Cross Breed Supertuck and its just fine. I'm not a big guy either. I'm looking forward to adding a FNX to my collection.
I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".
Anyone know what the FNX9 and FNX40 are going for?
